Nickel Package: Breaking down G. Smith

I'm sitting down this week with West Virginia's Geno Smith -- the hottest quarterback in college football and perhaps the fastest-rising prospect on the 2013 draft board -- to watch tape with him and get inside his football mind and see how he prepares on a weekly basis.
In advance of that sit-down, the results of which will air on "College GameDay" (10 a.m. ET, Saturday, ESPN), I went back and watched three of Smith's game tapes from 2011, as well as the Baylor and Maryland games from this season, with the intention of going to Morgantown with a variety of clips that illustrate his strengths and weaknesses, how he makes reads, and other factors in his game.
